Bikram Yoga


This weekend I went to a Bikram class. The air was
thick, hot, and smelly, and the postures
took everything I had mentally and physically (although
they didn't usually end up looking as great as this girls
posted above. ) However, it was awesome. I loved it.
I've really missed dancing lately and even though
I teach, I was interested in attending a class that would
fill that void. Yoga is great but sometimes it's more
meditative than challenging. Bikram Yoga is very
challenging and left me feeling empowered and
full of life.

This makes me want to go to another class - I've been to one here in Austin and loved it.

Right now I'm just doing Bikram's wife's pregnancy yoga, so I get to skip the "fun" poses like this.
